Hypothetical

Postby thinkbig » Tue Oct 26, 2010 11:36 pm

A client comes into your pro bono office and says, through an interpreter,

"I have an issue. My daughter owns a condo. I don't speak English. She asked me to rent her condo while she's away. In the lease it says they can't have dogs, but I told them they could have a dog. The condo board now wants to take back my daughter's condo because there's a dog there."

So now you've got a tenant with a dog, a client who speaks no English and who is about to lose his daughter's condo, and you have a daughter who has nothing to do with the above and is about to lose her condo. The client has no money. He is a first generation immigrant.

What do you do?

I would tell him to get the dog out of the Condo, and then GTFO out of my office because he's wasting my time.
